Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB Mice Added To The Lineup


About a month after Corsair spun out their PC peripheral line to create Corsair Gaming as an entity, there is a new addition to the lineup. Following the K70 RGB Keyboard’s lead, Corsair is introducing today (via press release) the Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB gaming mice. Coming in both optical and laser format, it will aim to provide enhancements in functionality, as well as the frills that come with high-end purchases in aesthetic customization.

Weighing less than 100 grams, the Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB mouse offers customizable optimization for multiple facets of use. As was included with the keyboard line, the Sabre RGB mouse provides access to the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) to make changes to the DPI, acceleration and button assignments on each of the 8 buttons available on the mouse’s body. Additionally, it will feature multiple different color-customizable zones that offer the 16.8 million different color options that seems to be the Corsair Gaming RGB standard. Those sections appear on the logo, the mouse wheel and the light panel on the side of the mouse.

Mentioned previously, the Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB mouse can come with either the 8200 DPI laser sensor, or the 6400 DPI optical sensor. Each unit will be priced at $69.99 and $59.99 MSRP, respectively. It was designed to utilize the same amount of precision as the M45 and M65 mice, according to the Product Manager at Corsair Gaming, Jason Christian. “As a competitive Counter-Strike GO player, I need an agile and accurate mouse to allow me to get consistent head shots with minimal effort and maximum efficiency,” he explained.

With both Corsair Gaming Sabre mice options sporting way above 3000 DPI, really the decision between laser and optical mice options for prospective buyers should be preference, in addition to cost. Those interested in picking up either should note that the Corsair Utility Engine required to change macros and color options does require a fair bit of software knowledge and wits to use, as noted in my K70 RGB Keyboard review. However, it’s definitely worth it if you aim to create your own designer eye-candy look in addition to its standard use with multiple RGB products of any kind.

For those interested in possibly winning a Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB mouse, in addition to an Nvidia GeForce graphics card, plus Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, you can enter Corsair’s contest here. While we can’t attest to the Corsair mouse’s quality just yet, and winning things is almost always great, we can’t say the same for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
